At last, it's here! Introducing ZOE HOOP's premiere ring: "Apple of my Eye." More than just an elegant silver ring adorned with a gemstone, it serves as a testament to the unwavering love and care we receive from God.
The inspiration for this piece came to me in a dream. I envisioned a ring that serves as a constant reminder of one's worth, of God's love, and His protective embrace. In this dream, I saw the ring exactly as it is now — with its distinctive black domed stone — and I distinctly heard the words 'Apple of my eye'. Upon waking, I delved into the Bible, elated to discover this phrase echoed in several passages.
The phrase "Apple of my Eye" resonates with Psalms 17:8: "Keep me as the apple of your eye; shelter me in the shadow of your wings." It's also found in Zechariah 2:8.
In this context, the "apple" often alludes to the pupil, an invaluable and delicate part of our anatomy. To request someone to "keep me as the apple of your eye" is essentially seeking their utmost affection, regard, and protection.
The imagery of the "shadow of wings" evokes feelings of safety and nurturing. It paints a picture of how birds shield their chicks beneath their wings. Here, it symbolizes a prayer for God's unyielding protection and presence — offering solace, especially during trying times.
Thus, the "Apple of my Eye" ring serves as a beacon, constantly reminding its bearer of their immense worth, love, and the encompassing protection of God.
Meticulously crafted from eco-conscious recycled sterling silver, this piece boasts a stunning Onyx gemstone, measuring 13.4 mm in diameter. The band itself is a sleek 4 mm wide. For those with a penchant for luxury, we also present this ring adorned with an exquisite 18K gold overlay.
To ensure a perfect fit, we've devised a handy sizing guide. Simply print it out and compare with rings you already own. Given the ring's slightly broader band, if in doubt, consider opting for the next size up. We've also incorporated a guide to assist with accurate measurement.
